People underestimate the extremities of the Scottish mountains. One moment sunshine, the next, a white out. One step heather, the next, ice. One mile a well-trodden path, the next, unknown wilderness.
Each year we get around 60 callouts from people who have found themselves in trouble on the hill.
Nine times out of ten, it’s because they are underprepared. Some of these people are lucky and end up ok. Some are never found and don’t ever make it back home. Don’t let yourself become one of these statistics.
